hey lovebutton, do you ever run out of questions??
"Dear Applicant,The bad news is you are rejected. The good news is, here is a bunny with a pancake on its head:Sincerely,Toby Stock"With a normal rejection my mind would constantly wander to the rejection and it would make me sad constantly. With this rejection every time I would think about the rejection, I'd get sad, but wait! There's a bunny with a pancake on its head. What a cute bunny with a pancake on its head...how can I stay mad at you?
Teehee. I wish I got to know this Toby Stock fellow.Do you ever wonder what was going on right before those people decided to procure both a bunny and a pancake and take this picture? i think i have an idea...

He is not american and got all these emails from americans who either loved it or thought he was engaging in bunny cruelty. He posted this letter in halting english explaining that he noticed his bunny would sit very still, so he put something on its head. It was really good at balancing that first thing, so he tried other things and would take pictures. Apparently, he has a whole album devoted to "bunny with an X on its head" pictures. He says the bunny's participation is voluntary and it doesn't hop away so he hopes people just enjoy the pictures and don't worry about the bunny.
actually lovebutton, in Bunny v. PETA, 1991, Where PETA filed a suit against a man and his Bunny for making these types of photos, the ruling was in favor of the Bunny. The judged ruled that Mr/Miss Bunny was allowed to pose for photos in which he/she balanced various objects on his/her head, as long as the Bunny was a consenting adult. In his testimony, the bunny stated in bunny talk (TOOTH GRINDING : Louder and slower than "purring", grindings are usually farther apart and often accompanied by other signs of discomfort such as protruding (bulging) eyes, that he was very upset with the entire proceeding. The Bunny lashed out at PETA for assuming that he was being treated unethically, The Bunny stated that he was very happy with his new job, and was hoping that it would lead to a career in Bunny Fashion Modeling. This case set a precedent for cases that followed in which Bunnies were granted many rights, emancipation from owners (if they decided that they wanted to make it in hollywood and/or felt that the owners were holding them back). Eventually, CAA (a prominent hollywood agency that manages talent) opened a separate department to represent such animal talent as Shamoo, Flipper (The new one), and their newest client who will be starring in a feature film based on the true story of Bugs Bunny's life in Hollywood. The film is titled: Bunny Foo Foo: Bugs Bunny and Gay Animated Hollywood.
